The Russian car market in May was in the second place in Europe

Russian car market, which falls each month, kept the second place in the “European Championship” in May.

According to the data, received by "AUTOSTAT" in National Associations of Automobile Manufacturers of Europe, a leader by vehicle sales in May was Germany, where automobile sales decreased by 9.9% to 261,316 units. According to the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), a decrease of consumer confidence, due to the ongoing debt crisis in Europe, continues to affect the German car market. If we take into account Russia during the consideration of the European market, then our country holds the second place in the “European Championship”, despite the increasing drop of sales. According to the estimation of AUTOSTAT agency, sales of passenger cars were 215,818 units for the last month, which is less by 12.5% than in the previous year. The UK car market is in the third place, which grew by 11% to 180,111 vehicles. According to the British Society of Motor Manufacturers and dealers (SMMT), a positive trend was recorded 15 consecutive months, and May result was the best indicator by sales for the last six years, which was less only by 3% than the pre-crisis 2007. The fourth result was shown by France – 148,554 sold units (-10.3%). Italy closes the “Top-five” of leaders with the index of 136,129 vehicles (-8%). According to the Italian Association of Automobile Manufacturers (ANFIA), a sales drop reduces gradually, and in April-May, dealers observed an increase in orders for cars that were not registered yet. We also add that the Spanish car market after the April growth showed again fall at the end of May - by 8.6% to 70,534 vehicles. In this case, due to the action of incentive program to subsidize the purchase of new fuel-efficient cars, the sales drop was less than in other countries.
